Applying Load Rules

Load Rules determine when and where to load an instance of this Tag. The 'Load on All Pages' rule is the default Load Rule. To load this Tag on a specific page, create a new load rule with the relevant conditions.

Note: We recommend that you load the Tag on every page for accurate collection of visitor data. Leave the default 'Load on All Pages' selection as is.

Setting up Mappings

Mapping is the simple process of sending data from a data source, in your Data Layer, to the matching destination variable of the vendor Tag. The destination variables for this Tag are available in the Mapping toolkit. For ease of use, the variables are grouped into different categories.
